Adán is a little surprised, but pleased, at how traditional Eva is. Christmas Eve, she insists that they go to the village church for the late-night Mass of the Rooster, and she delights in the fireworks set off after the service.

Then there’s a midnight dinner, this time the traditional bacalao, dried cod in tomato sauce with onions – which Adán can’t stand but tolerates because it reminds Eva of her childhood – and revoltijo de romerita, shrimp in pepito sauce, which he does like.
